I am trying to create an archive functionality in FMP 17.

In the demo when I fill in all the relevant fields and click "zip" a file is created (with the wrong name and no zip extension) and Filemaker then hangs requiring an external quit.

the same happens when I test the process in my solution.

Any ideas?

Hello Stickybeak,

If I could ask for a little bit more information from you that way we could do some testing on our end.

If you supply the following:

  1. What is the Operating system?

     

  2. What version is the OS?

     

  3. What version is FileMaker?

     

  4. Is FileMaker 32bit or 64bit?

     

  5. What version of the plug-in is being used?

     

  6. Can you provide a screenshot of the values you’re giving the zip function in the demo file?

Kind Regards,

PCIPal

Hello Stickybeak,

They issue may be because the source location is a Dropbox folder. 

We have tested with a local folder structure on Mac, with same naming convention, and had successful results.

The issue may be in the network connection with the Dropbox server. 

You may find more success copying the folder to a local temp location, zipping the local folder to the destination path, and then deleting the folder from the temp path. 

This is a bit of a workaround, but local should be far more reliable.

So there’s no inherent reason it won’t work with Dropbox...

      Hello,
      I have a FileMaker server 18 installation that’s crashing about once a week. When I look at the event log for the time of the crash. I see client 1 not responding, client 2 not responding etc. until all clients are disconnected.  All databases show as open in the server console. From a client PC no open files are listed for the host. If I telnet to the server from a workstation on port 5003 a connection can’t be established.   Stopping and starting the database server does not help. Restarting the FileMaker service does not restore operation. The server is still communicating with the network. I can open a web page or browse other computers on the network. Restarting the Windows server restores normal FileMaker operation. My environment is as follows:
      Windows Server 16 Standard Edition dedicated FileMaker server.
      8 GB memory
      80 GB RAID disk drive (40 GB free)
      Indexing turned off
      No third party backup software running
      No AV software running
      Windows File Sharing turned off for all folders.
      Windows Defender Turned off
      IPV6 protocol turned off
      What we have tried so far:
      We replaced the network switch (after the first crash a few weeks ago).
      Tested all databases for corruption.
      Compacted all databases
      Reinstalled FileMaker Server 18
       
      Any insights would be greatly appreciated
      TIA
      John

      Hi all
      Since upgrading to FM14 we've experienced crashing (errors 1000 and 1026 in the error log). I thought perhaps it was to do with version 14 or .net or my scriptmaster plugin.
      However it appears to be to do with a filter that I had in place for a portal. It was probably just a coincidence that I had so many records that it was referring to by the time I did the FM14 upgrade.
      I can probably do without the portal altogether really, but was just curious as to what the problem might have been.
      The filter formula was: Cases Closed::Closed_TimeStamp > (Get(CurrentDate) - 30)
      The Cases Closed table has around 22,000 records.
      Any ideas what's wrong with this?
      Thanks
